Dogboe accepts to fight ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe


Trainer and father of Isaac Dogboe, Paul Dogboe has stressed that his son is ready to fight Emmanuel Tagoe at 130 pounds (super featherweight) in July.

After Tagoe’s last Saturday’s win over Fernando David Saucedo, the former’s camp threw a challenge at Dogboe and the latter’s camp has accepted to fight.

With this fight coming up Dogboe would have to moved two steps up while Tagoe dropped down.

“My son his ready to face this crazy boxer [Emmanuel Tagoe], Isaac will knock him out in round 5,” Paul told

“It should be a winner take all, Tagoe’s camp said they will offer C$200,000 as purse, so we are ready to sign the contract, they have to make sure that the GBA sanctions the fight.”

“The agreed weight is 130 pounds that is super featherweight, so they should make the contract ready, after our fight against Jessie Magdaleno in April we are coming for him in July.”

Dogboe currently holds the interim WBO World super bantamweight belt while Tagoe holds the IBO lightweight belt.
